"I'll kill myself if I lose you."

There's so much passion yet also desperation in those words. It's like they're saying, "I've got nothing to offer you to keep you around, so I'll threaten you instead."

A relationship or a friendship based on threats, fear and manipulation isn't a relationship at all. It's emotional blackmail. It's like when a child throws themself on the floor in a shopping centre and starts screaming and crying and pounding the ground because they can't get what they want. It's like a much more horrible, selfish and threatening version of that.

I can't get what I want so I'll have to kill myself.

It's a horrible thing to say to someone. It's low, pathetic and selfish.

Now I'm left with two options. Do I go on giving you what you want until you feel better and move on from me? Or do I blow the whistle on you, call your parents and tell them you're suicidal and need help, then wash my hands of you. I really don't know at the moment.

I won't tolerate it again if it happens though, I know that much.
